Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov told reporters that such visits as the visit of the Secretary of the Russian security Council Nikolai Patrushev in Serbia, are normal practice. According to him, usually these visits are used to discuss regional and bilateral issues.
A Kremlin spokesman also said that Patrushev is in active dialogue with their foreign counterparts, actively communicating in different countries. Of course normal that there are such exchanges of visits, given the special nature of our relations with the Serbs, Peskov said.
Earlier MKRU reported that the Prime Minister of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic refused to comment to the media that from Serbia was sent a few Russians who were detained together with the citizens of the country for “preparation of terrorist acts in Montenegro.”
Media linked Patrushev’s visit to Serbia just for this situation, assuming that he traveled to solve this critical issue.
At the same time, as RIA “Novosti”, the Minister of internal Affairs of Serbia nebojša stefanović said Friday that the visit of Patrushev in Belgrade was agreed a few months ago and has nothing to do with the events in Montenegro.
